MARLBORO, Vt. (AP) - The ongoing ownership dispute over the former Marlboro College campus has prompted the organizers of a music festival to offer to front the costs of campus maintenance this summer.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports The Marlboro School of Music asked a court Wednesday to allow them to temporarily pay for campus upkeep so that its annual music festival can move forward. Marlboro College sold its campus to a nonprofit group, Democracy Builders, last year. But now, another group claims that it holds the deed.

A judge ordered the parties to present a plan to reimburse the music school for the cost of maintenance at the end of the summer.
